‘VOICES OF KOREAN ADOPTION’ PROJECT
Laura Wachs, established performance artist and community organizer, is behind this community art project which arose out of Wachs’ own journey to reunite with her biological parents. Wachs is awaiting confirmation from an agency helping her locate and meet them. Meanwhile, she plans to tell the world about the uniquely intricate experience of adoptees through several means: the above-mentioned poetry showcase, a book of poems from Korean adoptees all over the world, a book of poems presenting Wachs’ own journey, and a series of poetry workshops.
“The project presented itself to me,” Wachs remarked. “Once I began talking about my trip to reunite with my biological parents, I was flooded with stories of adoption. To see how prevalent this narrative was made me realize I wanted to bring awareness to it.”
Wachs is running a Kickstarter campaign to support the project. The campaign has thus far raised over 50% of the $10,000 goal, with two weeks remaining.
